  • Apply research methods and statistical techniques to analyse and solve problems within organisations
  • Use forecasting techniques and methods
  • Use survey techniques and design questionnaires
  • Identify and define a research aim and develop research questions

The professional project will develop the candidates’ skills in undertaking a structured and methodical research project involving production of a substantial body of work (8,000 – 10,000 words) which has been instigated, developed and produced as a consequence of their own initiative, using in-company research and/or industrial liaison and which offers opportunities for specialism.

In this unit candidates will be encouraged to use work-based research to realise the requisite requirements for this module.  Each candidate can base their project on their own work based environment, or using a relationship with a company or organisation.
